It is probably true to say that Sydney has more fantastic beaches than any other city on earth. With well over a hundred beaches in the Sydney area to choose from it is a somewhat daunting task to pick out the very best. And who's to say that is the best for anyone else - the sheer choice means, to use a cliche, there's a beach for everyone, whether you are a surfer, swimmer, snorkeller or sun-worshipper.
For many people one word springs to mind when you mention beaches in Sydney, and that's Bondi. OK, few would argue it isn't a great beach, and it's certainly iconic, but dig a little deeper and you'll discover there are any number of beaches to rival (and surpass) Bondi.
